[cheering] >> we have to do some work right here in the great state of nevada. [cheering] because nevada is a battleground state, you are aware that we have an election going on. >> >> sean: they said the comments would come early in the speech. i assume that's all he's going to say. he said it's a tough day today and only 24 hours after it happened did he say we will bring those people to justice. at no time, did he mention islamic terrorists. perhaps he will refer to thi

-u.s. protests in cairo. the secretary of state hillary clinton has denounced the violence against the united states. >> but as i said yesterday, there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. we condemn the violence that has resulted in the strongest terms. >> let's turn now to cnn's ben wedeman in cairo. 224 people injured so far? >> reporter: yes. that's right. and in fact, the number is probably likely to rise. right now, i'm hearing a lot of shouting and there were just a moment ago a lot of teargas being fired in the street. right next to the american embassy. and this is really been going on all day long. and what we have seen in the last hour is that the security forces have pulled back closer to the area immediately around the american embassy. now, we had a chance to speak with some of those protest earls. many of them blaming directly president obama for this current uproar. >> translator: our demand is that president barack obama appears and makes an official apology to all islamic nations. that is our right. we also want the tape burned and al
know. yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the united states, the u.s. embassy in cairo released a statement that read, in part, "the embassy condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims. as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. they released that statement because there was an angry mob gathered outside, and that mob continued to gather as the day wore on. nearly five hours later, the state department confirmed the embassy had suffered a breach. protesters outside the embassy were reportedly there due to anger over a reported low-budget anti-muslim film made in the united states and posted on a youtube account. more on that film in a moment. by late afternoon, the compass embassy was reiterating its statement on twitter, one of the tweets read, "of course we condemn breaches of our compound. we're the ones actually living through this." a short time later, the state department confirmed the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, libya, was under attack. searches for the british mo
of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. [cheers and applause] i directed my administration to do whatever is necessary to protect all americans who are serving abroad. it's one of my highest priorities as president. we're also if contact with other governments to underscore that they've got an obligation to cooperate with us to protect our citizens. that's part of their job. now, i know that it's difficult sometimes seeing these disturbing images on television because our world is filled with serious challenges. this is a tumultuous time that we're in. but we can and we will meet those challenges if we stay true to who we are. and if we remind ourselves that we're different from other nations. we are, we're different not only because of the incredible landscape that god's given us, we're different because we're a nation that's bound together by a creed. we're not made up of a single tribe or single religion or a single race. we're a collection of people from all around the world who came here because of a certain set of principles, the idea that a

reauthorization makes plain that discrimination is not the policy of these united states. it says no program funded by federal vawa dollars can turn away a domestic violence victim because of their sexual orientation or their gender identity, whether the victim is gay or straight, american indian, white, black or latino, in my view, madam president, and in the view of so many in this chamber, they deserve protection from abuse and justice for their abusers. there are two other important changes in this vawa reauthorization as passed through the senate. both of which help ensure we bring perpetrators to justice no national who their victims are or where the claims are committed. these help law enforcement to secure needed testimony from victims who are unwilling to come forward due to reasonable fears of deportation. so in total, all three of these important changes to the substance and scope of vawa i think strengthen it, i think carry forward its initial spirit and i think are completely appropriate things for this senate and the house to do in our every five-year reconsideration and reauth
was not cleared by washington. it does not reflect the views of the united states government. the romney campaign quickly accused the obama administration of sympathizing to those who have attacked american interests and americans, calling the messages from the administration a quote disgrace. fifteen minutes later, secretary of state clinton issued a statement condemning the attacks in benghazi, but making no mention of the attack in egypt. at midnight eastern, the cairo embassy statements are removed from the official website. in the obama administration reacted to the reports of dead americans in libya. but not without replying to governor romney's criticism of the president as well. the statement said we are shocked that at a time when the united states of america is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in libya, governor romney would choose to launch a political attack. at 5:00 a.m. eastern this morning, reuters informed that the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stephens and three other americans have been killed in benghazi. six hours later from the president
? >> there has been no reaction yet regarding the reaction by the united states. but, anderson, earlier today, we heard from senior government officials, the former prime minister now of libya and the speaker of parliament holding a press conference, strong condemnation of the attack vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice and saying the speaker of the parliament, saying this attack coincided with september 11th. they believe there is something there, hinting that this was carried out by islamic extremist groups that operate in eastern libya, and saying that libya will not allow its land to be used by these groups to carry out what he described as revenge attacks against the west. at the same time, saying they will need the help of the international community in confronting these groups. people here, anderson, really shocked by what happened. many libyans i've spoken to today are really saddened by this attack and hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice. >> the state department, we saw a very grave secretary of state clinton condemning the attacks. cnn has confirmed it was a planned
